Project Description

Picture-034Westchester Joint Water Works (WJWW) retained the services of D&B Engineers and Architects (D&B) to prepare plans and specifications and to provide construction services for improvements to the Larchmont Booster Pumping Station. The major improvements included the addition of a building extension to house a new 5,000 gallon above ground sodium hydroxide storage tank, installation of a static mixer, a new electric service, new electric switchgear and motor control center, new phosphate storage tanks and metering pumps and other miscellaneous building and site improvements.

IMG_3721The new static mixer was installed in the existing 30 inch line which is the primary source of water to the WJWW’s low service zone. In order to accomplish this installation, shut down of this critical line was required. This work was performed during night hours and the line was returned to service before the daily morning demand increase. Special equipment and technicians were required to complete the cutting of the pipe and the installation of the static mixer in this limited time span.

D&B submitted the plans and specifications along with all required forms for approval of the Westchester County Department of Health and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
